P. Merven

Trainer: M. Patrick Merven

Patrick Merven met with success when he was trainer for the ex-Wahed Essa stable. However, he found things very tough when he opened his own stable, winning just a single race during his first season.

Since 2011 though, things have gone well for him, as he has regularly finished in the top four in the Trainers’ standings. After a challenging 2016, he will be hoping for better things this season.
